Reviewer: KEE
It is a very worthwhile cruise to explore the lovely St. Petersberg city at night. We saw many places that we could not have seen with the bus tour. The guide explained the various interesting landmarks to us. We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise.

4 StarsGood tour, needs a little improvement October 18, 2019

Reviewer: Susan K
This tour didn’t quite feel like a cruise at first on the main Neva River but more like we were racing from one point to another. The speed did get better in the canals. The boat’s PA system was not working at first so we missed the narrative at the beginning. We did see a lot of sights and the length of the tour was good. It was difficult to hear the narrator with the wind and cold and being bundled up so this tour would have benefited from those personal earbuds that the day tours provide. The narrator did have an accent but was still understood for the parts we heard. Would still recommend this tour but really needs personal headsets.

The tour guide person (sorry I forgot his name) came to pick us up on time at St. Petersburg port. Seeing St. Petersburg at night time from canal cruise was quite an unforgettable experience. We did a similar canal cruise during the day but the night one was better as the city was lit up spectacularly at night time. It was a bit cold in the end of Sept but we thought it was worth it. I would recommend this tour.

We loved this night excursion even though it rained. Was one of the highlights of the trip. Was so beautiful. Only negative I have is that it was difficult to understand the guide, given his accent

Really enjoyed the evening cruise in St Petersburg! The lights were spectacular and the commentary about the buildings along the canal were very informative. It was a beautiful night!
